The objective of this paper is to provide a review of retardation models for constant and variable amplitude spectrum loading in 2D constrained small scale yielding. The models considered use a numerical 2D finite element method to determine crack opening and closing stress intensity factors. The correlation of the predictions of the models with(More)
The present work shows the numerical determination of fatigue crack opening and closure stress intensity factors of a C(T) specimen under variable amplitude loading using a finite element method. A half compact tension C(T) specimen, assuming plane stress constraint was used by finite element method covering the effects in two-dimensional (2D) small scale(More)
